As with the U.S., aggressive monetary easing in Japan is not translating into falling government bond prices, especially when the easing is the central bank buying government bonds. The 10-year JGB (JGBL, JGBT) yield falls to 0.55%, the lowest in about a decade even as a new regime has made devaluation of the yen its key economic policy. Top-gaining Japanese ETFs last week: DFJ +4.3%, JSC +4.2%, SCJ +3.4%, FJP +3.2%.

    Japan has not actually started it's easing yet, they are only talking about it. The new Bank of Japan Governor Kuroda will be holding a meeting on April 3-4 to announce his plans for easing, including the timing and pace of it. After that, we'll know more about when the actual easing will start. But it hasn't started yet.
